In Pictures: Kapurpurawan Rock Formations

If you want to see something unnatural for a vacation destination, then these bizarre-looking rock formations might just suit your preference. Its normal to see sand lining a coast right? Although it is pretty common too to see rocks instead of sand bordering the shores, it is unusual to see shallow pools with no shades of trees lining the shore. What’s even bizarre is the strange looking rock formation that resembles like that of a dragon, seeming to be guarding the shore; adding up to that picturesque sights are the limestone that makes up the rocks. That and more are the things you’ll see in this unique place in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte.
